KING OF THE BEAST AND MY LOVE OF CAROUSELS--

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with INTEGRITY REAL ESTATE 19755

I love carousels and this one was so beautiful that I had to take a picture of each animal. I think the lion is one of my favorites. I think they take me back to when I was a little girl and wanted to own one--a carousel, not a lion. Although I guess I would have taken one if someone had tried to give it to me. I wanted a horse to keep in my room and feed it sugar, I could have kept a lion too.

I love carousels too! The one at our zoo was built for the 1932 World's Fair in Chicago and came here in 1937. They almost always have a wonderful history.

What a rush of memories that come when I see this photo.  I love it.  I think I can hear the music and smell the popcorn and cotton candy.  Thanks!

Treva,

Thanks for sharing this beautiful sculpture. I guess that it's hand-crafted? :)

Hi Treva, This is a magnificent carosel lion. I've maybe only seen one other in my lifetime! Thanks.

There's an antique shop near my home that has a few of the old carousel animals.  I always look and wonder where I could put it in my home.  I love them!  Great photo!

The carousel brings back memories of my childhood when we used to go to the county fair.  Lots of fun.
